Red Fog

Sydney is carpeted in an amber fog this morning. We've had 100k+ winds overnight. It is all very wierd.

It smells like dust

-- update --
Everything is covered in a fine talk like dust, I'm breathing Dubbo.
Here is the view from outside my office - the sun is blue - obviously the red light is being scattered.

Just saw photos on our weather channel this morning and came to your blog first, because I knew you'd have photos up. We're weather geeks...
I would have loved to have been there to take photos, nothing like a dust storm to create a dramatic feel to a photograph. And that video from Broken Hill was incredible!

I heard this on the news this morning, freaky shit.

Is this payback for all those times you took the piss out of MY weather?

Spiky cracked me up.

I had just been trying to email Steph to ask about the red skies and dusty air you guys have been breathing the past few days. And then I realized I needed to come over and see what you had to say about it. That's some funky, biblical-looking stuff. I went through all the pictures. I can't believe people are out jogging in that.

Sydney is now a city of dirty cars

B said...

to match their dirty minds?

I wish my wife was as dirty at the car

I need to buy stock in makers of air filters for automobiles. You guys are going to be replacing every filter you've got.
